With the injuries to British tennis star Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund and Jo Konta might rise to the occasion for the country.
For the first time since the 2013 edition of Roland Garros, there was no single British rep in the fourth round of the ongoing US Open.
Last year, Edmund and Konta reached the fourth round of the US Open, with Murray reaching the last eight. Dan Evans battled against the tournament eventual champ Stan Wawrinka but he lost in the third round. With the slump at Murray’s end, there is no tennis star from Great Britain that can fill in the gap at the highest levels. And it is very disappointing!
Evans has since been caught in the web of cocaine use that can end his pro career while Edmund neck injury is another concern. Murray has decided to take a break for the rest of the year, even cancelling plans for the defence of the titles he won last year. Continue reading

The latest game was challenging indeed, where he put up a difficult front of his opponent as well. Continue reading

Andy Murray was relieved to be able to finally secure a win versus Novak Djokovic to clinch Rogers Cup yesterday.
In the previous eight meetings between the two players, Djokovic had beaten Murray every time. To avenge all those loses, Murray could perhaps not have chosen too many better occasions than this. Not only did he break the jinx, but, also sent a statement to his rivals ahead of making his way to Flushing Meadows.
Djokovic had pretty much won everything this season and thus, coming into this final, there was hardly anyone who was not putting his money on him. Murray’s head to head record against him was also making him the clear favourite. But, the Serb was not quite in his groove from the start. Continue reading
